I didn't know this book even existed, I have the first book and this is a great addition to my running library.

Super fast delivery, well packed and in excellent condition.

Author, Amby Burfoot, printed an update version of these two books called: The Complete Book of Running. Which of course I also bought.

Great books for Novice to Experience Runner and a must have for your collection.

After all these years this book is still relevant; Jim Fixx was no dumby and this book gets 5 stars in my opinion based on what it will provide in comparison to what you will pay to get a used copy. Worth your time to read if you enjoy running and enjoy running books as I do.
